    Pair's Outlook
    XAU/USD cross remains trading in the vicinity of two major technical levels that are located at 1,160 and 1,145, correspondingly. Still, Gold remained under increased bearish pressure back on Tuesday as short traders attempted to push the bullion below the weekly S1. However, a failure to do so resulted in a bounce back towards the 1,150 mark. Judging from technical indicators, the precious metal will continue developing downwards, but a fall below 1,134 (monthly S2) is highly unlikely to happen in the short-term. 

    Traders' Sentiment
    Sentiment toward the precious metal is optimistic among SWFX traders as the total share of bullish positions (75%, 1% since yesterday) has a strong advantage over the bearish ones at the moment.
